This hotel is well located backing on to a Safeway and some cafes and restaurants. The hotel lobby is very modern looking and nice to sit in with plenty of seating for their cafe. The problems I had related to the room itself. The door had large gaps around it so a lot of light from the hallway flooded the... More

After flying cross country and driving from San Francisco I arrived at 11:30 pm local time (2:30 pm my time). When I tried to check in they told me they were sorry but that they had no rooms available. They acknowledged my reservation but said that someone must not have checked out as expected that day and so they were... More

Bed was plush and comfy. Restaurants and stores walking distance. Typical courtyard, which is why I stay in these. Would stay here again. My only negative was the traffic was so bad it was a little too far out of Petaluma and we would stay closer next time. But then the highway construction will be finished by next year.

We decided to try out the Courtyard in Novato for a recent trip out west. We looked for a place to stay near San Francisco that wouldn't break us and this one was perfect. It was a short drive into San Francisco. The hotel itself was right off the 101, but we never heard any free way noise. There was... More

My husband and I wanted to head to Marin to hike for the weekend. As a Marriott member, I had a certificate to use and decided to book a room at the Novato Courtyard. We really enjoyed the property. It's location is convenient to 101, had a few restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance, and the hotel itself... More

Layout and amenities are typical Courtyard. Pleasant staff. Tiny pool with fire pit area. Adjacent to shopping area with three restaurants and a Safeway. Near Highway 101, but far enough away to be free of traffic noise. Nice community and neighborhood. King room was nicely furnished, but dated (wall-mounted air conditioning, bath-shower combo with curtain). I'd likely stay here again... More

Stayed here for 5 nights while working at the race track. The room held up well during a 6.0 earthquake. No damage from what I can tell although the guy in the room above me must have fell out of bed. I could hear a big bang and foot steps heading to the door! The bed was nice and it... More

If you didn't know where this place is, you might have a hard time finding it. Off the freeway and away from the frontage road, this Courtyard is a soothing place to stay. Great front office staff, beautifully appointed rooms and baths (there was a hidden fridge in a cabinet - yay), quiet and elegant, this is a great property.... More

My husband and I planned to add on a couple of days to a conference in San Francisco. Stayed two nights at this hotel. The area is more bedroom community than destination site and we had to drive about an hour but it fit our needs to a T. Hot tub and pool were nice, guest laundry small but they... More

We've stayed here several times over the past few years and our latest visit was, if anything, better than before. Definitely recommend, even though I think their prices have gone up a bit. Note for the future, a commuter train line is set to start running right next to the hotel property in 2015. Could be noisy.
